Oh, this? Well I like privacy when I retire. Yes, I’m very delicate in that respect. Prying eyes annoy me. Behold the Walls of Jericho! Uh, maybe not as thick as the ones that Joshua blew down with his trumpet, but a lot safer. You see, I have no trumpet. Now just to show you my heart’s in the right place I’ll give you my best pair of pajamas. Uh, (pointing to her side of the blanket) do you mind joining the Israelites? (she doesn’t move) You don’t want to join the Israelites? All right. Perhaps you’re interested in how a man undresses. You know, there’s a funny thing about that. Quite a study in psychology. No two men do it alike. You know, I once knew a man who kept his hat on until he was completely undressed. (he slips off his braces) Yeah, now he made a picture. Years later his secret came out. (Whispers) He wore a toupee. Yeah. (He unbuttons his shirt) No, I have a method all my own. If you’ll notice, the coat came first. Then the tie. Then the shirt. Now according to Hoyle, after that (He puts his hand on his belt) the pants should be next. There’s where I’m different. I go for the shoes next. First the right. (He drops a shoe) Then the left. (Drops the second and starts unbuckling) After that, it’s every man for himself. (She flees to her side of the blanket) (He sings) Who’s afraid of the big bad wolf, the big bad wolf, the big bad wolf? She’s afraid of the big bad wolf, tra la la la la la!
